Find the Baby Mantis

Remember all the Preying Mantis egg cases my son got out of the butterfly bushes?  They’ve hatched!  I’ve been finding baby Mantis’s all over the place.  Even on my couch!  But nobody would hold still long enough for a picture – till today!  I found one while I was working outside and yelled and yelled until someone heard me and brought me the camera.  Until then I played corral the baby Mantis.

Can you see him?

Can you see him?

Better?

Better?

See how tiny?!

See how tiny?!

So cute!  And they eat lots 'n lots of bugs!

And I also collected a small handful of Serviceberries from my baby tree. (Damn late frosts!)

A couple of spoonfuls of vanilla ice cream, a dash of milk, and berries.  Mmmmm...

I’m ending my day with a couple of spoonfuls of vanilla ice cream, a dash of milk, and ripe serviceberries. Mmmmm…
